The Seattle Seahawks host the Detroit Lions this Sunday, and it could be Russell Wilson’s last home game as a Seahawk. At 5-10, Seattle is expected to finish in last place in NFC West for the first time since joining the division in 2002, and the team could consider a potential rebuild.
The Seahawks and their star quarterback had a tough offseason last year, and it looked like the Super Bowl champion would play for another team in 2021 at some point. CBS Sports NFL insider Jason La Canfora reported that Wilson was open to dealing with certain teams and nothing has changed to change that. However, Wilson said on Thursday he hopes Sunday won’t be his last game in Seattle.
“I know for myself personally, I hope it’s not my last game. But at the same time, I know it won’t be my last game in the NFL,” Wilson said, via Pro Football Talk. “I’m just focused on today and I’m improving today. That’s my goal. I love this city and I love this moment. I love these guys and we have to make sure we get better today. ‘Yeah. That’s all that matters. “
Wilson still has two years on his contract, although there is “little or no chance” of an extension to come, league sources have told La Canfora. It feels like the franchise is at a point where it could undergo a rebuild and ship one of its best draft picks of all time. Or is Wilson pushing for a change of scenery behind closed doors? There is also the possibility that the two mutually decide to go their separate ways. Whatever happens, it’s sure to be an interesting offseason in Seattle.
